Zimbra Archiving and Discovery : How Discovery Works : Installing Archiving Package as an Update to ZCS

Installing Archiving Package as an Update to ZCS
The Zimbra-archiving package can be installed and configured on an existing single-server deployment or on a multi-server deployment as an upgrade to ZCS, and archiving is enabled on each MTA in your ZCS deployment.
If the mailbox server and the MTA server reside on the same node, you configure and enable archiving as a single upgrade process. If your mailbox and MTA servers are on separate nodes, the zimbra-archive package is installed first on at least one mailbox server and then the archiving component is enabled on each MTA in the deployment.
Installing zimbra-archiving in a Single-Server Environment
In this upgrade process, it is assumed that the LDAP, MTA, mailstore and archiving servers are on the same node. To install archiving in a single-server deployment, you have to:
Follow these steps to install and enable archiving on a single-server:
1.
Refer to the Single-server Quick Start guide to open an SSH connection to the ZCS server. Log on to the server as root and run the ./install.sh command to begin the upgrade process.
2.
Accept the license agreement. The server then checks for existing packages and asks if you wish to upgrade. Type Yes to run the upgrade.
3.
Type Yes for zimbra-archiving when presented with the packages to be installed.
The upgrade process begins and the archiving package is installed. At this point the Discovery feature in installed and can be used.
4.
To enable archiving, switch user to zimbra and enable archiving on the MTA server.
a.
zmprov ms <zmhostname> +zimbraServiceEnabled archiving
b.
zmcontrol stop
zmcontrol start
Installing zimbra-archiving in a Multi-Server Environment
The following upgrade scenario assumes that the LDAP server, MTA server(s), and mailstore server(s) have ZCS installed correctly. You are now adding a new server that will be dedicated as a archiving server to this environment.
When you add archiving and discovery to an existing ZCS multi-server environment as a dedicated archiving server, you install the zimbra-archiving package and the zimbra-store package on the dedicated server, and you enable archiving on each MTA server in your deployment.
Before beginning the install process, note down the following information. You need this when you install the archiving server. Run the zmlocalconfig -s command to find the information.
LDAP Admin Password ____________
LDAP Hostname _____________
LDAP Port _____________
Refer to the Multiple-Server Installation chapter in the Multi-Server Install Guide for detailed steps on installing the packages.
1.
Open an SSH connection to the mailbox server that is being configured for archiving. Log on to the server as root and unpack the Zimbra software. Run the ./install.sh command to begin the install process.
2.
Type y and press Enter to install the following packages:
The zimbra-core package is installed by default.
 
    zimbra-store
    zimbra-archiving
3.
Type y and press Enter to modify the system.
4.
The Main menu displays the default entries for the Zimbra component you are installing. To expand the menu, type x and press Enter.
5.
Select the Common Configuration menu and configure the LDAP Hostname, LDAP password, and LDAP port.
6.
Select the zimbra-store menu and configure the Admin password and the License file location.
Complete the installation process following the steps under Installing Zimbra Mailbox Server. At this point the Discovery feature is installed and can be used.
Enable archiving on each MTA
After the archiving package has been installed on the archiving server, you must enable archiving on each MTA server in the deployment. Complete the following on each MTA server. This is run as zimbra.
1.
zmprov ms <zmhostname> +zimbraServiceInstalled archiving +zimbraServiceEnabled archiving
2.
zmcontrol stop
zmcontrol start
Repeat for MTA server.
